Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane was pleased to overcome the Nedbank Cup giant killers on Sunday, but felt there was too much talking.
Sundowns progressed to the quarter-finals of the Nedbank Cup after defeating Vaal University of Technology 2-0 on Sunday afternoon.
Mosimane praised the fourth tier outfit, who defeated Golden Arrows in the last round, but feels there was a lot more talking down surounding the game.
I'm happy that we went through [to the next round] and there's been a lot of talk here, too much talk but it's okay, what is important is to beat the students and they must lose against us and we progress. But they are a good team," Mosimane told SuperSport.
Mosimane felt the only negative on the day was his side's crossing into the box.
they are a good team, they played well, they are well coached, well organised. But we were also nervous a little bit, the guys were nervous in the first-half, we couldn't make easy, simple passes," he added.
"Only technique let us down, they were open, especially with balls from the side, they were opening in the heart of defence. We could identify it but our crossing let us down, we were crossing low balls and balls that were going to them. But at least in the second-half we managed to sort it out."
